Robert Kirshner (Moore Foundation) "Doing WFIRST Science Now: Supernovae in the Infrared"

November 17, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Abstract.- An infrared-capable 2.4m telescope is presently in orbit:  the Hubble Space Telescope.  This makes it possible to do rest-frame infrared observations of Type Ia supernovae.  In the infrared, SN Ia are more nearly standard candles and there is less obscuration by dust.  I will give a status report on RAISIN2, an HST program that tiptoes into the realm of WFIRST science today.
